Welcome to the Headwaters Complex!

The Headwaters Complex is made up of three buildings—Madison, Jefferson, and Gallatin. In each of the Headwaters buildings, there is a lounge and full size kitchen available for all of the residents. The Headwaters is an awesome community where you can create close relationships with your suitemates and connect with your community. You can look forward to weekly events planned by the Resident Advisors and Hall Council, as well as the NorthWaters Polar Plunge, our exciting Traditional event where you can plunge into the freezing water at Bozeman Beach, win prizes, and enjoy yard games and barbeque. We can't wait for you to join us on campus!
